From the Alp Trida saddle the hike begins along the ridge of Alp Trider Eck towards Viderjoch. Shortly below Viderjoch, the trail passes the deep blue snow-making lake. Viderjoch is on the border between Austria and Switzerland. This point can also be reached by chairlift via Alp Trida. Now the path continues to the left of Flimspitz on Austrian soil. A short descent follows before the well-signposted path leads over the imposing rockfall below Flimspitz. The path leads in a short ascent to Flimjoch, where again the national border is crossed. Here you have the possibility to make a detour to the Flimspitz. To the left, Bürkelkopf and Bürkelspitze arise. At the bottom of the plain there are five small lakes. The numerous large boulders around the lakes are perfect for a rest. You can return to the Alp Trida saddle in just under an hour.
